Beckham’s Tendon Injury Ends World Cup Dream

in Leisure

Last chance for David Beckham seems to have gone after his Achilles' Tendon injury in AC Milan's 1-0 win over Chievo on Sunday. The former MU Midfielder flied to Finland for surgery on Monday but doctors said that his international career is now finished. The 34-year-old football star hoped to be part of England's World Cup squad. However, that now seems unlikely with his current injury. "He is upset should he miss the World Cup but is quite a positive individual,” David Beckham’s agent Simon Oliveira said. "David is a quick healer and we just have to wait for the scan and the surgery, if that goes ahead on Monday."

The accident happened in the final few minutes of the match when David Beckham fell and then struggled back to his feet. In 2006, David Beckham suffered an Achilles injury during England's World Cup quarter-final but he recovered in time. But this time the injury is more serious as his rehabilitation could stretch to five or six months.

With only a few minutes remaining in AC. Milan's 1-0 victory over Chievo Verona, Beckham was handling the ball when all of a sudden he bent down and grabbed his left ankle.

A member of Milan coaches consoled Beckham before he was brought away by medical staff.

The former star of MU and Real Madrid looked terribly upset. Achilles' Tendon injury often takes at least 6 months to recover, and therefore his Fourth World Cup dream is likely to be terminated.

The former England captain will fly to Finland, where he would be treated by specialist surgeon Dr. Sakari Orava.

Also in this match, Beckham had received torn on his face after the dispute with a Chievo player.

The English Star was on his second loan stint to AC Milan from Los Angeles Galaxy as he looked for chances to make Fabio Capello's 23-man World Cup roster.

With no chance to take part in the 2010 World Cup, his international career is likely over 17 goals and 115 appearances.
